LG has introduced a new smartphone called LG X500. It is said to be Korean edition of the LG X Power2 that was announced in February this year through the Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2017 event. The LG x power 2 came with a massive battery of 4,500mAh capacity. The LG X500 also features a same-sized mammoth battery.
The LG X500 has a 5.5-inch screen that produces a HD resolution of 1,280 x 720 pixels. It features a LED enabled 13-megapixel rear camera and a 5-megapixel wide angle lens with LED flash for snapping selfies. Its 4,500mAh battery can gain to 50 percent by charging it only for 30 minutes. The company claims users can enjoy watching videos for 20 hours without charging.
It is priced at 319,000 KRW (~$285) and it will be in South Korea through its three leading carriers starting from June 9. SK Telecom users will be coming with LG X500 with model number LGM-X320S and KT users will be getting LG X500 with model number LGM-X320K. And, the LGM-X320L model will be coming to LG U+ users.
